A- very dark brown with no little head. Its a little light for a stout. Kinda looks more like a quad.

S- so much chocolate. Delicious. Some heat from the alcohol. Lots of vanilla as well.

T- just like the nose. Chocolate with a lot of vanilla. The heat is actually not as bad as i thought it would be. But there is still a lot there.

M- pretty smooth for it. The sweetness is very strong though. Little heat from alcohol. Silky sticky deliciousness.

Such a great beer. Don't have time to do the whole review right now but this is an amazing beer.
